Hoffenheim vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction

Hoffenheim have bounced back from their dismal winless run and are currently sporting a two-match winning streak under their belt. Their most recent clash, in particular, witnessed them take down the mighty Borussia Dortmund with a narrow 2-1 scoreline at home.

The hosts are now sitting seventh on the table, and are just three points shy of breaking into the top five.

Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt have been coping very poorly in the Bundesliga, to say the least. They have admitted defeat in six of their past seven fixtures in the top flight, and have garnered just one measly point from a possible twenty-one.

To make matters worse, the visitors are the worst away side in the cluster as far as statistics go. Their only win from their outings so far came against Union Berlin, that too by a 2-1 scorecard way back in late September.

Furthermore, the guests are on a five-match losing streak on the road. Taking into account that they have also secured the bragging rights just once in their past six trips here, Eintracht Frankfurt have little or chance of coming away with the win in this one.

However, the guests have shared the spoils in three of their last six visits to this stadium. Given that Hoffenheim have also dropped points in three of their past four games at home, back a double chance, just to be on the safer side.

Additionally, Hoffenheim have been found napping at the back far too many times. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of their past four fixtures here and have conceded eleven goals from those matchups alone.

Taking into account that Eintracht Frankfurt have also been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in their last two visits here on the trot, count on both teams to find the back of the net together this weekend.
